idk why but i feel like sharing a bit about how i came to love haikyuu so much, and it’s entirely because it probably saved what little part of me actually wanted to continue living when i first saw it

it got a bit long so i put it under a cut for the uninterested

GREAT new interview with David; read the whole thing but here are some fave quotes:

…“I feel like in the entertainment industry it’s this never-ending high school phase,” he says. “You’re always trying to look cool and be popular. That really affected me. I was still myself but I think I was trying to be something else.”

“I feel really good about who I am now,” says Archuleta, now 25. “I feel really comfortable in my own skin.”

…Archuleta says that when he sings in Spanish it’s like another part of him is revealed. “I can’t fully connect and fully express myself without singing in Spanish,” he says. “It’s like I get to show another part of David.”

Singing in Spanish not only helps him connect with his own heritage but also the people of Chile that are still in his heart two years after his mission there. He now lives in Nashville but he goes salsa dancing every Tuesday because of his love for Latino music and culture. (note from me: omg salsa dancing. every tuesday. best ever.)

Archuleta is currently working on a full-length album he hopes to release early next year. Following this English-language release he wants to do an entire album of Spanish-language songs.

…Although the new album is a long time coming, Archuleta admits it takes him a long time to do a lot of things — even ordering food at a restaurant. In fact, he compares himself to Professor Calamitous, the evil scientist from the “Jimmy Neutron” franchise whose plans are always foiled because he’s never able to finish any of his projects. (note from me: haaaaaaaa)

The difference is that Archuleta does eventually finish his projects. Part of the delay for the album is because each song in an original. Each track started with an idea from his head. Some he wrote on his own while he worked with co-writers on others. “I just want them to be me,” he says. “I want them to say the things I want to say.”

…Archuleta says he is appreciative of the support his fans give him but he’s not always sure how to respond to declarations of love. He doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings but he doesn’t feel like it would be honest to respond back with an empty “I love you too” to a stranger in the crowd.

“I like to be honest,” he says. “I feel like if I’m real with people I’ll get that in return. I’ve just learned to say, ‘Thank you.’” Ultimately that’s what it comes down to for Archuleta: being real. 

…“When I’m on stage singing my songs, people think I’m so much greater than I am; I’m just a normal person,” he says. “They’re both me.”


It makes me really happy when someone tags one of my gifsets as “fan art”. It sounds so much better when they’re labeled art as opposed to “just” gifs. I mean, *I* label them “just” as gifs, so I’m 100% not knocking those who tag them as “gifs,” (and tbh kudos to people who take the time to tag them anything at all lol) it’s just when I see something of mine tagged “fan art,” I feel happy inside thinking that someone appreciated the set enough to think of it as art. Like, I actually created something that resonated with someone in some way. (lbr I’m way overthinking this and it’s just the particular vernacular they use for tagging, BUT…I’ll take my happies where I can get them thank you very much! So shhhhh) I hope this doesn’t offend people who actually make art and who are so much more talented than I am. I’m so jealous of people who can art! And write. Me dumb.

The official SU page on Facebook posted a clip from the episode with this description and, I dunno, I just really like that they did that

The people that call themselves the clique, in a sense Josh and I believe in that group of people and call ourselves one of them…what I love is that I get to look out there and see people from all walks of life and realize that this “clique,” maybe the word rubs you the wrong way, like its supposed to be inclusive but i don’t think that’s what it’s become…I think our fans do an amazing job with involving the people who are just now hearing about and I’m, I’m proud of them
